Beans Enchiladas

Lots of beans, corn, cheese… Yes, I’m talking about “Beans Enchiladas”! These super saucy enchiladas take total of 35-40 minutes, but when you take it out of oven and have a look, you will feel it worth every second of your work!!!
I would have preferred cheesy enchiladas with heavily loaded with cheese only, but I convinced myself to say a big NO for 2 reasons:
– I love protein-packed bundles
– And major reason is.. it’s not a waist-line friendly idea :P
And yes, I’m not a person to have too spicy food! So adjust ‘hot’ element according to your taste! :)
Makes: 6
INGREDIENTS:
6 Corn Tortillas
2 cups Mixed Beans
1 Chopped Onion
1 Garlic Clove (minced)
1/4 cup Boiled Corn
1/4 cup Chopped Capsicum
1/2 cup Yogurt
1 cup Shredded Cheese
Salt, to taste
1/2 tsp Red Chilly Powder
2 tsp Olive Oil
METHOD:
– Heat olive oil in a pan and add chopped onions and capsicum with minced garlic. Saute it for a min.
– Add mixed beans, corn, salt, chilly powder into it and mix well. Don’t mash them completely.
– Cook it for 3-4 mins on medium-high flame.
– Turn off the heat and add yogurt in it. Mix well and keep it aside.
– Grease a baking tray with few drops of olive oil or butter.
– Take corn tortilla on a flat surface, put this beans stuffing in horizontally line and roll it as shown in image.
– Arrange it in baking tray and follow the same process for rest of all corn tortillas.
– Pour enchilada sauce all over it and cover it with shredded cheese nicely.
– Put this baking tray in preheated oven for 15-20 mins on 200 degrees.
– Smell of melted cheese and enchilada sauce will make you have it hot!!!

 

SJ’s NOTE:
– For mixed beans, I used a combo of chickpeas, adzuki, pinto and kidney beans. You can pick your favorite beans and use them.
– Generally mild cheddar is used for this dish, but I preferred a combo of parmesan, mozarella and cheddar!
– Warm corn tortillas on flat-pan or microwave as instructed, before using them.
Some dishes are great if made intentionally for the leftovers, as I found my enchiladas were better on the next day ;)
